A moving, evocotive, and expertly-painted Art Nouveau or Arts and Crafts-influenced illustration painting making reference to the interior story, Artificial Creation of Life by Garrett P. Serviss titled How Did Life Begin On This Planet?

This is by the illustrator William Krieghoff and the evolved technique at the turn of the last century is mind-boggling.

This piece personifies the allure of art nouveau, double matted in a large beautiful ornate frame.
